Jason Aldean took home the top prize – and cleaned house – at Monday's American Country Awards in Las Vegas.
"This is getting ridiculous," he said upon winning artist of the year, just one of the six awards he took home.
Carrie Underwood and Thompson Square each took home three awards, but Toby Keith may have stolen the evening, winning artist of the decade and performing his insanely quirky and catchy song "Red Solo Cup."
"Hell, anybody can have a good decade, huh?" he said. "I've had a great decade and I hope I have another one."

Kristin Chenoweth is ready to start a family, but the singer-actress is also doing just fine on her own.
"I'd love to have a husband to have a child with," Chenoweth, 43, tells the January issue of Prevention. "It hasn't exactly worked out that way, and that's okay."
"I would still love to have that partner, that man – that right one who's going to take care of me yet let me do my thing, yet has his own gig going on, yet isn't intimidated!" she adds.
For now, Chenoweth has a different kind of baby: a Maltese named Maddie. She constantly travels with her tiny pup and is so devoted to the Maltese that she founded the charity Maddie's Corner in her name.

She was ready to shop! Kristin Chenoweth led a group of friends through a West Hollywood-area Target. The petite actress was dressed down, in leggings, a pink coat and glasses, during the outing. Says an onlooker: "She and her pals were having a great time." The group stopped to browse a lot, and checked out various juice products. According to the fellow shopper, Chenoweth was the leader of the pack, guiding them down all the aisles she wanted to visit – including the baking aisle. – Jennifer Garcia

Broadway Week on Dancing with the Stars was such a thrill! Everything had to be as big as possible, while also relating our dance to our song, "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" from Monty Python's Spamalot. Our foxtrot needed to be cheeky with lots of turns and kicks and flicks and skips – all of which we delivered, thanks to Sir Lancelot, a.k.a. my partner Tristan MacManus.
When Carrie Ann said our dance was a "show-stopper," I think I blacked out. I took her comments very seriously last week and I am so glad I gave her the personality and dance content that she wanted.
For me, this week was all about progress. I mean, HELLO PEOPLE, I did a handstand into Tristan's face! (He actually had the hard part because he had to catch my feet and turn it into a stunt!) First try in rehearsals, he dropped me on my head and pulled my pants off. Good times! I am still speechless that we pulled it off and got our first 9 of the season all in the same night!

The Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced Sept. 18, and one thing's for sure – the winners' lives won't change. At all. No, really.
At least, that's what past winners Jeremy Piven, Megan Mullally, Kristin Chenoweth and Jackée Harry insist in a new video, where the stars talk about their post-Emmy lives.
"It definitely hasn't changed my day-to-day life," Mullally, who won twice for Will & Grace says. "I still get up and shower like every normal person."
Then again, she showers with her Emmy Award – a helpful little gold statue that scrubs her back. She's not the only one in a deep, committed relationship with her Emmys: Piven straps his three Emmys (all from his turn as Ari Gold on Entourage) into car seats before taking them for a drive.
